Watchmaker Mondaine has just introduced a new collection of watches based on the world’s most popular and timeless font, Helvetica.

Originally designed in 1957 by Max Miedinger and Eduard Hoffman at the Haas Type Foundry near Basel, Helvetica is considered the perfectly elaborated, well balanced, logically structured and sophisticated harmonious typeface for modern printing needs. And Mondaine has created three lines of watches based on the Light, Regular and Bold cuts of Helvetica.

The Helvetica number «1» with its famous curved crossbar has been used as a model for the lugs:

Helvetica No 1 Light Watch Collection:
